Why You Should Clean Air Ducts

8/23/2019 (Permalink)

Commercial Cleaning Specialists Commercial Cleaning Specialists

When you use a traditional HVAC system, the air ducts are a vital part of circulating the air.

However, when the ductwork becomes dirty, your indoor air quality can suffer as a result.

It may also lead to further problems like mold growth, which may affect your health. To avoid this, the commercial restoration service specialists at SERVPRO® of Cape May & Cumberland Counties recommend having a professional clean your ducts every three to five years.  

Why Air Ducts Should Be Cleaned 

  1. Breathe Easier

As air circulates through the HVAC system and your office, it is easy for dust, dirt, and pet dander to become lodged in the ducts. According to this commercial restoration service, as the amount of allergens in your ducts increases, those with allergies may be affected.

  1. Remove Mold

When moisture from damp areas in the home makes it to the air ducts, they encourage mold and mildew growth. This leads to spores spreading throughout the office.

  1. Increase Energy Efficiency

When air ducts become impacted with dust and other debris, it causes the HVAC system to work harder. As a result, your monthly energy bill can start to go up. When you have it cleaned, the air can blow freely out of the vents. Additionally, your unit is less likely to require as many repairs when it is working efficiently.

The trusted team at SERVPRO of Cape May & Cumberland Counties provides numerous commercial restoration services, including air duct and HVAC cleaning, mold remediation, and odor removal and deodorization. For questions about our services, call 609-624-0202.

Flood Odors at Your Vineland Business?

8/18/2019 (Permalink)

Here To Help and Ready for any size disaster.

Flooding leaves offensive odors. SERVPRO® of Cape May & Cumberland Counties has the equipment and expertise to remove those odors.

Resolving Commercial Water Damage in Vineland

When we talk about water issues in your commercial property, we’re talking about the impact of moisture on furnishings as well as microbial damage. All moisture carries microbes which can produce unpleasant odors. In older commercial properties structural contents like blinds or carpets can carry pre-existing issues like grime buildup or mold. Exposure to moisture can loosen embedded grime producing further unpleasant odors. We work closely with commercial properties in this community to restore property damages quickly and efficiently.

The Franchise Professionals that work repairing commercial water damage in Vineland businesses are highly trained professionals with certificates in a range of remediation areas. These certificates include water repair technicians (WRT), applied structural drying (ASD) and odor control technicians (OCT). Depending on the breadth and scale of your requirements, we can send a unit with the correct qualifications to restore your property to a safe working environment for both staff and customers.

The ability to mobilize equipment is a crucial aspect of restoring a commercial business. At SERVPRO® we rely mainly on truck-mounted extraction units for drying a property. These machines are capable of removing excess quantities of water from both soft and hard flooring by combining vacuum power with a heating element. They are up to a thousand times more efficient than merely placing dehumidifiers and rapid air movers.

Getting your business back “to business” for your staff and customers is what we specialize in, contact SERVPRO of Cape May & Cumberland Counties at 609-624-0202.

We serve Vineland, Millville, Bridgeton and surrounding communities in Cumberland County. We also serve the County of Cape May. Click the following link to learn more about Vineland.

While spring is the perfect time for a deep clean, you may not have the time, expertise, or products to get the job done. Hiring a professional cleaning service company will save you stress and provide you and your family with many additional benefits. As Summer approaches, now is the time to rid your house of all of the excess pollen, dirt, dust and allergens that come with the Spring.

Top Benefits of Deep Cleaning Services 

  1. Better Equipment 

Most families do not have a carpet and upholstery machine or know how to properly remove debris from air ducts. By calling someone to take care of your deep clean, you won’t have to spend money on equipment and products you rarely use. Professional cleaning teams with experience in odor and stain removal have state-of-the-art technology and formulas to wash each item in your home safely and effectively.

  1. Enhanced Health 

 You may not realize how dust and allergens are affecting your family until you get a deep clean. Pollen, mold, and dirt particles could be making you sick by circulating throughout the rooms of your residence. They could even be hiding in your carpet, ducts, or air filters. An expert in spring cleaning will guide you on the tasks that need to be completed to improve your loved ones’ respiratory health. 

  1. Improved Hygiene 

No one wants to spend time in a dirty home. In a matter of hours, your cleaning team will turn each grimy and messy space into a hygienic haven for your spouse, children, and guests. Whether you are planning for a big summertime party or would like an easy way to manage your house’s overall cleanliness, a professional, deep clean will help you get started.
